Please look for a second opinion. She was a horrible doctor. She didn't review my son's results and did not get get back to us for 2 months time. She kept rescheduling, first suggested a boot than blamed us for not coming in sooner and now says my son needs a harness. Terrible and not understanding. Not professional at all blamed her staff. I felt she delayed and now my son has to pay the price. She was right about being pro active we should have gone somewhere else.

Dr. Minkowitz is the absolute best. My son had cactus feet, which was very painful for him. He also could not walk right and hobbled when he tried to run. Dr. Minkowitz operated on both his feet one year apart. Now my son can wear shoes comfortably, walk straight, and run like a normal little boy. I am very grateful for her expertise and her excellent work on my son's feet. She is the absolutely the best.

Dr Minkowitz is one of the most skilled doctors I've ever met. My daughter is a dancer and had pain in her feet from significant problems with her plantar fascia. Dr Minkowitz immediately was able to diagnose and treat her non-invasively, effectively and creatively by casting her to mold her feet. Not only is she skilled in what she did, but her bedside manner is beyond compare. She is easily one of the most knowledgeable and relatable providers I've ever come across. Highly recommend!

My 6 year old broke both her radius and ulna. We were told most likely surgery by the orthopedic at the ER. Dr. Minkowitz managed to reset her arm and it healed beautifully. This was critical, being my daughter is a competitive gymnast. She is back in the gym and better than ever.

We met Dr. Minkowitz in pre-op after our 13 year old son sustained two severe fractures with compromised circulation to his foot. It was an urgent situation and he was rushed into surgery. Dr. Minkowitz restored circulation and repaired the fractures with two pins which were later removed. No permanent hardware was used. Our son's recovery was uneventful and he healed beautifully. He is back to playing sports and performs as if this never happened.

I met Dr Minkowitz of course under terrible circumstances. My then 5 year old broke his femur bone. First ER dr said he might need a rod in his leg. And then I met her she assured me she could fix this no rod at all but would have to wear a partial half body cast for 6 or so weeks. No incisions or anything she would minipulate the leg back togher in the OR. I have nothing but positive things to say about her. And her office staff is just as nice as she is. Would highly recommend her to anyone!!!

Dr. Minkowitz is an outstanding doctor and such a compassionate person. We took our 9-year-old son to her because he was complaining of leg pain. She diagnosed the problem quickly and accurately and, because we were eager to take care of it immediately, got him in for surgery 5 days later. The surgery was a total success, and our son was back on the soccer field 2 weeks later. We are so grateful to Dr. Minkowitz and her wonderful staff! I couldn't recommend her more highly.
